Note to Clint Hurdle: You have to use Mark Melancon like this.

Hurdle was smart there. Better to lose the game now rather than risk Mark Melancon not being able to collect a save.

I assume Mark Melancon was unavailable because he was abducted by aliens or something?

#Pirates bullpen: Watson available again tonight. Melancon iffy after pitching in four of past five games. Pimentel had sim game today.

With Pirates closer Mark Melancon having worked three consecutive days, lefty Tony Watson comes on for 9th with 1-0 lead over #Brewers.

Melancon has pitched three straight days so Bucs will start the ninth with Tony Watson.

#Pirates unlikely to use Melancon to close today, as he's pitched in each of past three games.

Kind of feel bad for the ol' #bowlofjello. Uses Melancon in a tie game, which is the right move, and it didn't pan out.

Logan Schafer's sacrifice fly finally snaps 0-0 tie and gives #Brewers 1-0 lead off Melancon.

Lyle Overbay's double leaves runners on corners with one out in ninth for #Brewers against Melancon. Pinch-hitter Matt Clark up.
